KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Dominique Kirk hit five 3-pointers and had 19 points, and Josh Carter hit two free throws with 7 seconds left to help Texas A&M hold off third-seeded Kansas State 63-60 in a Big 12 tournament quarterfinal.
Texas A&M shot 50 percent - a huge improvement from its
first-round game against Iowa State - and didn't let anyone besides
Michael Beasley do much of anything, winning its second straight
conference tournament game after going 1-11 the previous 11 years.
Bryan Davis had 11 points, Carter added 10 and Kirk was 5-of-6
from 3-point range for Texas A&M. The Aggies move on to Saturday's
semifinals against fifth-ranked Kansas, which needed a big second
half to beat Nebraska to advance.
